Thought I would just share what I have been experiencing after using the advice I have seen on here about setting up a fake POF profile to see what sort of messages men send to women.
First off - Women gets tons of emails, within the first 30 minutes the fake profile had received about 50 messages!
Secondly - Men are very dull! The majority of the messages just simply say "Hi" or "Let's chat" or "You're beautiful" and other such dull messages. Then you get the guys who tell you about how much they have a good heart, and they will treat you right etc. Fortunately, no dodgy c##k pictures so far and just one message from a guy who said he wanted to probe me lol
This just shows how many dull, boring messages women get sent and how your message has to be different to engage their attention.
I am completely new to this and still very much a beginner. From this test I can see where I have been going wrong, so using all the cool information from this site, I should hopefully be able to improve my online game.
Hope that helps.
